NS 5338

Post by PVRX1 » Tue May 19, 2009 11:50 am

Norfolk Southern GeeP 5338 is still in tattered ConRail blue, with the black patch under the cab window, with white numbers and "NS" applied.

Nothing too special there. BUT, on the frame, under the cab - engineer's side, is a CSXT metal plate affixed, like a builders type plate. Any thoughts ?

I was in another loco along side of it but could not read it as it went past.

The locomotive is equipped with an Ecotrans K9 APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). CSX Transportation is a partner with Ecotrans, thus the unit carries a CSXT Environmental tag indicating it meets the FRA Tier 0 emissions requirements for locomotives manufactured before January 1, 2002.
